  To boil it down into a couple sentences; if 70's R&B/blues is your thing, then this disc is a must have! At the very least, it can safely be labled as criminally forgotten.
  First of all, Eric Quincy Tate was not an individual but rather a blue-eyed R&B outfit playing the club circuit in Texas when they were discovered. This swampy concoction, there first and only studio effort, was recorded at the "Sounds of Memphis" studio in 1971. The cast of characters was absolutely stellar! Three legends share production credit; Tony Joe White, Jerry Wexler and Tom Dowd. The personnel roster boasted the Dixie Fliers(house band for the studio), overdubs by the Memphis Horns and a cameo appearance on slide by none other than Duane Allman. Only the drummer/vocalist and guitarist from the actual band were allowed to play on the LP; which gives the digitally remastered original tracks a tighter, more professional feel than the bonus tracks which feature the "real" band. The "demos" by the real band, which form the last part of the disc, have a looser, more naive and therefore sincere groove. The sound quality throughout is excellent.
  All in all, this disc easily qualifies as one of the best 70's releases that you never heard of. The song writing is superior and the instrumental attack is engaging throughout.I strongly recommend it. (By C. Pumarejo "Bunny Rabid")
